More problems at Covington Co. Hospital

Ongoing fallout from the Covington County Hospital and it's yet-to-be-opened nursing home has claimed another victim.

On Tuesday morning, nursing home administrator Connie Smith submitted her letter of resignation.  Smith tells Seven On Your Side that she's informed board president Keith Lundy about her intentions to step down.

Smith's resignation comes a week after nursing home director Melissa Lott was layed off.  Both had come under fire recently after it was revealed the nursing home's policies and procedures manual had been stolen.  Financial and administrative problems have plagued the facility for nearly two years.

The board is meeting at this hour to discuss hiring an administrator to run both facilities.
